Bisaillon. Dressers. September 27th , 2017.
You have to choose your oak dresser depending on whether you want one with smaller and more drawers or one with fewer and bigger drawers. Of course, the larger the dresser, and the more drawers in the dresser, the more expensive it will be.With oak being a durable and heavy wood with beautiful grain, oak dressers are basically stronger and more durable than dressers made from other woods such as mahogany. It is better to get yourself an oak dresser if you have a large and active family which will be opening and closing the dresser frequently, as these dressers dont damage easily with so much wear and tear.When compared to pine furniture, unfinished oak furniture is second to it in terms of popularity amongst furniture buyers. This is because this unfinished oak dresser can easily be stained, and coated in a layer of clear urethane.
Storage chests are perhaps the oldest type of bedroom furniture that is still in use today. Traditionally made out of thick wood, this is a basic dresser simply made of four wooden walls, a base, and a lid with powerful hinges. These chests vary in type and size and are a useful form of storage in any bedroom, whether a childrens room or a master bed room.This is one of the most commonly used bedroom furniture dressers today. Double dressers are short and wide with many drawers - the number of drawers will usually range from six to nine, arranged in rows of twos or threes. Some double dressers come with a dressing mirror attached on top or hanging right above. If you are looking for high capacity storage, then a double dresser will likely do the trick.You might be looking for a specific type of bedroom furniture dresser design that is currently not available on the market. For instance, you have scanned the internet for bedroom furniture dressers designs, found a design you like but could not find a ready made dresser at your local furniture store. Many furniture stores will allow you to place an order for a custom made dresser. This may cost a little more than the "off the shelf" dresser, but at least you will get what you want.
The Queen Anne style of furniture is historically made from walnut, which is definitely a Colonial American tradition. Handmade dressers today are made from all kinds of wood, like butternut, cherry, mahogany or maple. Like walnut, butternut wood is prized for its soft, light yellow highlights and darker grains. In order to create a more contemporary look for a dresser, an artisan will blend different woods together. Making hardwood knobs out of different woods and materials is an easy way to give any traditional style of furniture a unique look. Darker dovetail details on the top of the dresser or on the paneling also brings a simple accent of elegance to an otherwise simple dresser. Studio furniture designers enjoy the freedom to play with combinations of knobs, joinery methods and natural woods to satisfy each and every clients personality and style.
The same dovetail joinery that craftsmen use to create sturdy handmade desks is also used to build elegant tops, sides and drawers of handmade dressers. The body of the dresser, or the carcass, is held together with dovetail joints that add an element of design as well as making it extremely strong. Other dressers employ frame and panel construction that is highlighted by mortise and tenon joinery that is accented with wooden pins. Combining both techniques for any style of handmade dresser is what makes the carcass durable and the drawers move in and out smoothly.
Dressers with mirrors are usually placed in the bedroom as "vanity stations". Most dressers with mirrors are low, about 2-3 feet tall, with a slot for a low stool or chair. The cabinets and drawers flank the space for the chair. These dressers have big tops that function as tables to place cosmetics and other trinkets. The cabinets and drawers usually are not deep and spacious as smaller articles are usually placed in them. Newer designs of dressers with mirrors take out the space for the chair and replace them with cabinets. Furthermore, newer designs are taller and have more spacious cabinets. Newer designs seem to combine the functionalities of a vanity station and a storage space for clothes and bigger articles. These dressers are bigger, and so these are suited for bigger rooms with more space. But there are smaller and more compact dressers with mirrors available in the market today. Although smaller, they still provide the same function.
